The Event

On April 22, 2016, students from Georgetown’s Communication, Culture & Technology Master’s program (CCT) invited their campus and community to play, learn, and reflect at Old North, Georgetown’s oldest standing academic building.

For the past year, multiple Georgetown classes have been on a pilgrimage to Old North. On April 22nd, the building became a site of actual and digital pilgrimage for the broader campus and community with an event intended to inspire contemplation, awareness, and interaction. The combined effort of 6 undergraduate and graduate courses culminated in a series of multimedia, interactive installations to demonstrate the site’s architectural, cultural, and social heritage. Visitors came to experience the stories of Old North’s past, present, and future.
